TD.win needs to make sure it doesn't.

Seriously if any organization wants to essentially state that most of its customers are inherent racists then they don't deserve my money. Am I wrong?

Guess who wrote this lame Goodyear statement?

Melissa Monaco, Goodyear, (330) 796-4391

let us be clear - GOODYEAR DOES NOT SUPPORT ANY POLITICAL SLOGANS WHATSOEVER. FULL STOP.

EXCEPT FOR THE DEMOCRAT SLOGAN BLACK LIVES MATTER.

That's the only one. Nothing else is acceptable.

the worst part is that the muppets in their not so diverse diversity team have no clue what they did wrong, according to CNN black lives matter is all prayers puppies and hugs, and i dont think they ever ventured outside their favorite "news" channel to have a look for themselves, thats why they double down on this in the second(!) clarification, and i'm willing to take a bet it gets worse before it gets better.

BobDobalina 24 points ago +24 / -0

I think these long slow stories are the best way to do it. Then you have to make it personal with the person on the phone too. So something like

"Yes mam, I was calling today because your company just released a press statement, did you see what they are saying? "

Very slowly

Then "I don't understand why you would be saying this, my husband is a black police officer and I just checked, his car which is parked right out front.... they gave him a new one last year because he had worked, you know he worked himself up in the ranks, I think he's a lieutenant or I don't know, whatever they call you know, the next level up from where you start? He's that now and he got a little bit of a raise too. Anyways, I checked and his police car actually has Goodyears on them, do you still sell the Police Goodyear tires? It said on the press release that you don't sell the police good year tires, or you don't back the blue, or something, I wanted to know why do you not like the police cars?

"

Then just keep going, be slow and polite so they can't argue with you. when you get them to eventually be sympathetic to you because you're being so nice and obviously just confused, agree with them slightly so it draws them in more.

"Oh, so you do still support the police, that is great. I am so happy, thank you. So then it's wrong, they can wear all the back the blue shirts and the hats and all that, right? I bought my husband this one, it has a really thin line, you can barely see it, pencil thin and then in this nice script in gold (we love gold) it says "back the blue"! So those are allowed in your stores, right?"

Then act confused at whatever the answer is, when they eventually come to a position you disagree with and openly admit it, go to

"Oh well I don't agree with that. Do you agree with that?"

by this time they think you're super nice so they will likely agree with you and say it's just company policy... then finally the killer

"Mam, why do you work for them if they believe these horrible things you don't agree with yourself? I mean you're in the position where you're just answering the phone for a company you don't agree with or have any respect for. when you go home with your paycheck for pushing their bad policies all day, do you really feel good about what you're contributing to the world?"

The key to doing this is you have to be very calm, very slow spoken, and just analyze their comments over and over again, get them to repeat things, and then make it personal. I've done this with dozens of people when I have to call customer service about anything, the goal is to keep them on the phone for at least 30 minutes. I think it likely plants a seed in some of their heads....

If you just cuss at them or make a joke you get a 1 second thrill out of it then they just forget about you because you're a 'jerk'. Talk it out slow with them, get them to think about what the hell they're actually supporting.

BobDobalina 7 points ago +7 / -0

I've been around awhile. If I get screwed to the point where I have to call customer service, yes i have 30 minutes to fuck with somebody on customer service.

The last time I did it was when my brand new Whirlpool dryer broke the first day I installed it. I called and talked to the woman for at least 45 minutes, she admitted to me she has Samsung Chinese shit in her house and they never give her any problems. So I asked her why is she working for Whirlpool when she doesn't even like their products, and why an American company like Whirlpool wouldn't stand behind their products that break on the very first day.

Which were legitimate questions, I wanted answers to. I dont' want to just shit on whirlpool, maybe I got a bad one, but when it breaks the first day (will not turn on, error code says there's a bad board) and the customer service answer is we'll send somebody out to look at it, at 4 in the afternoon, two weeks from now, I think I need to ask more questions.

Remind them in your emails that they're about to lose contracts for tires from PDs all over the country because of this fool Melisa Monaco (mentioned above)

Don't bother using the Goodyear corporate email - that's just a siphon to shield corporate execs from dealing with unpopular decisions.

Here's the text I used. Feel free to improvise on it.

"Shame on Goodyear for advocating violent groups like Black Lives Matter, while forbidding employees to advocate for Blue Lives Matter, police and law enforcement and to acknowledge that Donald J. Trump is the nation's President. This is on you, Rich Kramer. You have made my next tire-buying decision much, much simpler, as it won't ever involve Goodyear. In fact, may your company have nothing but a Bad Year now and until you publicly demonstrate corporate contrition.

Me too. This means the campaign to get to Goodyear is working. Don't be discouraged. We aren't captive to email and phone. Try writing the CEO a letter, the old-fashioned kind with pen and paper, and mail it to:

Rich Kramer CEO Principal Executive Offices Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. 200 Innovation Way Akron, Ohio 44316-00

If you want to get ballsy, require a signature to ensure there is a paper trail upon receipt. Ie, registered mail. Costs a few bucks, so you have to decide how much it means to you.

cotoneaster 12 points ago +15 / -3

No, that's the point. Supporting police is a political belief. Not allowed. BLM is a civil rights issue, and civil rights is the underlying philosophy of our society and legal system. It stopped being the constitution years ago. Many of us just didn't notice.

That's why, for example, left wing people can call Trump a traitor to America. Because he is in the way of the march of civil rights. And this is where the logic of civil rights leads us. Inequality under the law.

That's.. not true.

Blue Lives Matter was a direct response to the Black Lives Matter thugs attacking, ambushing and killing police. Something something "pigs in a blanket" bullshit.

It is absolutely a political statement in exactly the same way that Black Lives Matters is.

From their perspective, black lives were being targeted and killed unfairly -- whether true or not (it's not) that's what they believe.

Blue Lives Matter came to exist for the same reasons: People were targeting and killing them unfairly.

Countering a political statement with a political statement is still a political statement.

I don't mind if a company wants a politically free work environment in terms of work clothes. But that would only be pins and stuff like that as would imagine safety gear has to be worn.

But to ban Trump gear and All Lives Matter gear then to allow BLM shit tells me a whole different story. It tells me the whole company is anti-American and socialist. Since BLM is a Marists movement and anti-American.

So fuck'em. I Will never buy a Goodyear tire again in my whole life and I'm a person that really doesn't care what tire goes on my car. But from now on I will be asking and all they have is Goodyear I will go somewhere else.

Don't care if they go back on anything said. No more Goodyear.

Exactly. Banning all political slogans is fine, but pretending black lives matter isn’t a political slogan while banning blue lives matter is 10/10 retarded

You're not understanding how it works now. Not just with Goodyear, but with probably every other institution you can think of. They are all infested with the same ideology and are all responding to the same legal (lawsuit threat) system.

Trump and All Lives Matter are political issues. BLM is a civil rights issue. Civil rights is the underlying sacred philosophy of our country now. Once something has achieved civil rights status, it is untouchable and sacred, like a Hindu god.

I'll never understand why these stupid companies do this to themselves. You could just NOT SAY ANYTHING and then not have to run it back and try to re-explain and try to pander to either or both sides simultaneously while losing entirely.

Nobody wakes up on a Tuesday morning and thinks, "I wonder if the company that made my tires has a stance on racism?" or "I wonder if the company who makes my underwear supports my political candidate?"

JUST SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP TAKING STANCES ON SHIT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU!

All of this woke retardation doesn't win them anything, it can ONLY cause them to lose and create division over their company and products where none existed before.

Man, remember when not everything was fucking political? Now you can't take a piss without someone asking whether or not it was a piss for team red or team blue and what that means for society at large.

This is probably the most obvious sign that the left is taking over everything - look at China - if you have a business there and it's very large and popular, you're part of the communist party, and your execs are communist party members. They literally will not allow you to exist if you're not. This is what the left wants for America - either you tow their line, or they will not allow your existence. Hire 50% blacks or you'll lose your business license for "lack of diversity". Donate millions to the Democratic party or we'll have the IRS up your ass 24/7 until you're bankrupt. THIS IS THE FUCKING FUTURE THEY WANT, FOLKS.

I'll never understand why these stupid companies do this to themselves.

Because previous owners let SJWs infiltrate and subvert.

Once that happens, politics becomes job #1, and the company is no longer able to serve the purpose it was created for.

Robert Conquest’s Three Laws of Politics:

  1. Everyone is conservative about what he knows best.
  2. Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.
  3. The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.

While I generally do not agree on "cancel" this or "boycott" that, I am proud of you American pedes.

We use the lefts own tactics against them. They back one company into the corner, we make them back out of the corner.

We bring balance back to politics.

stratocaster_patriot 5 points ago +5 / -0

Well it's not like I'm cancelling them or boycotting them. Just refiningt the list of people I might actually buy tires from.

Keep in mind that at one time Goodyear was in the top 20 polluters in the use and responsible for something like 250 superfund clean up sites. They aren't lefties but feel the need to act like it these days like so many others. Taking them off the list of suppliers and cancel culture are not really the same thing at this point. They have done some bad things and it should affect their future.

BLM is Anti-Police.... BLM is a political organization.

It's no different then saying employees can wear Biden shirts but not Trump shirts.

The company is forcing political views on its employees and its customers.

They will try to use the excuse that it's a non-political statement... yet they threat the phrase "All Lives Matter" as if it IS a political statement. There is no All Lives Matter organization. But there is officially a BLM organization.

How is this not a sue-able offense?

Same bullshit response Amazon tried to give me when they tried to tell me that their Facebook Verified Amazon Prime Video Account with 14M+ followers wasn't a real Amazon account - until I spoke with my AWS rep who is sweating bullets over me moving 3 accounts off that bill more than $1M a year in AWS services combined, they have backed off of that line of BS and are trying to string us along with credits and claims that I will receive a detailed explanation of their handling of the situation by end of business Thursday.

Just like every liberal rag online started doing years ago. Back then I wanted to start a website called “the comment section” just so “news” articles could be posted there and commented on, after seeing comments sections slowly start to disappear. (Before I even knew what Reddit was, and now is unnecessary because we have T_D now)

It pisses these people off when they can’t control the narrative, and when the average person pushes back and calls them out.

Fark.com did that like 20 years ago. The entire purpose was to post lazy and retarded news stories and everyone make fun of them. Drew, the founder even wrote a book about how lazy and stupid the news media is, it was pretty funny.

Then it slowly became moderated to where only certain news could be made fun of. Then it turned into news is amazing and brave and Orange Man Bad.

Really weird to see over time. It was a lot like Reddit long before Reddit existed. They were libertarians who hated the media

I'd be just fine with a company banning politics if it weren't for the fact that I know they wouldn't have done it if the employees were campaigning for a different political party. I have no problem with the rule, it's the asymmetric application of it that makes me rage.

All Goodyear’s YouTube videos are open for comments. If you were denied the opportunity to reply on Twitter, then simply add your thoughts to 20 of their videos. Tip: be sure to write a somewhat different comment each time do you don’t get flagged as a spammer.
